It was one of the first series to feature a recurring Black character (played by Amanda Randolph), though it was a stereotpyical role (a maid). Either way, this 1948 series is believed to be completely lost. While it is certainly possible that lost DuMont shows might have an episode surface (for example, if a guest actor requested a copy of their appearance), the chances of this 1948-1948 series having any surviving episodes are extremely slim.

Man, I am amazed at all this info I keep coming across...I hope you don't mind me randomly posting on this board.
